Series: Invasion: Earth
1998 drama from The BBC and The Sci Fi Channel. During The Blitz, an strange creature piloting what appears to be a V2 missile crash lands in London and is found by Lieutenant Charles Terrell, an Oxford don and anthropologist. 50 years later, a UFO is shot down over the Highlands. The craft was being piloted by Terrell who doesn't appear to have aged a day. Elsewhere, UFO scientist Amanda Tucker and her research assistant, Nick Shay, have picked a bizarre transmission on their computers that is seemingly not of this earth. Also in attendance is Flight Lieutenant Drake, who shot down the craft and ended up losing his best friend in the process, as well the head of the nearby NATO base Major General Reece, and his Number Two, Squadron Leader Helen Knox.
